COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Die Familie Pott in Oelde, Bierbrauer seit 1769, bewahrt die traditionellen Werte der heimischen Region. Jetzt hat Pott’s die althergebrachte Herstellungsweise der Holzfasslagerung in einer speziellen Schatzkammer wieder aufleben lassen. Das Ergebnis sind außergewöhnliche Spezialitäten in limitierter Menge. In neun gesattelten Holzfässern aus Eiche reifen die nur in kleinen Mengen in großer Handwerkskunst hergestellten Jahrgangsspezialitäten heran. Die Schatzkammer-Spezialitäten werden nach der Reifung in individuelle, optisch hochwertig veredelte 0,66l-Flaschen abgefüllt. Schatzkammer-Serie No. 1 ist das „Pott’s Triple-Porter, 9,8 % Alc.“ „Diese Jahrgangs-Spezialität wurde mit amerikanischer Hefe, englischem Hopfen und deutschen Malzen in Anlehnung an die Rezeptur eines Brauers der befreundeten Harpoon-Brewery in Boston eingebraut“, erklärt Braumeister Peter Wienstroer die Herstellungsweise des feinen Stöffchens.

Bottle via Germany. Bottled April 2011. A dark brown pour, quite light for what you would expect from the style, with a small quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is very malty, and bready, with quite a bit of dark fruit, some wood, and also quite earthy. The mouthfeel is pleasant, and the carb is quite nice. The finish is sweet, and quite malty. A distinct sweet, sherry finish, with some earthy grasses. Almost all the hops are gone, this reminds me of an aged english style barley wine. Fresh im assuming this resembled a porter, but now, its taken quite a turn. Still a very pleasant beer, just not a porter at this point.

Süßliche, etwas wässrige Kaffeenoten. Röstig, wenig Karamell. Der Körper ist für den Alkoholgehalt dünn, die Würzigkeit insgesamt ist OK. Insgesamt in Ordnung. 10/9/10/9/8/9

Clear glass, bottled as Serie No 1, "bottled April 2011 best before June 2012", has a big mushy layer of yeast on the bottom; I massively overpaid for this a few months ago and have been saving it since. Nose explodes with chocolate, light roast, red berry and some cherry, lots of earth, some caramel, hay, toffee, nuts, roasted cereals, toast, dough, citrus - extremely complex, even has some barrel notes and light booze. Red pour with a lot of yeast particulate (unavoidable on my end), head is large and dense, rocky light brown. Taste medium tart-sour, whiskey/oak/vanilla and warming booze notes, but the complex nose is reduced somewhat to simpler doughy/dark caramel notes, though it’s pleasant mix. Light bitterness toward the end and especially into the finish, light crackers and bright citrus with a bit of scratchy resin. Medium body. The alcohol is pretty classy here, makes its presence known but doesn’t burn or fume up, has the character of a spicy but very mild rye whiskey, warms gently and has a sort of faded elegance. I’d prefer if some of the sourness were traded for more robust chocolate flavor, but on the whole it’s great to see this kind of complexity and sophistication coming out of the German scene (so add a few homer points!), Harpoon or no.

Idiosynkrasie (4466) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2012
660ml bottle. Clear darker brown with average, firm, frothy to creamy, lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma has notes of roast, coffee, grainy coffee surrogate, a touch of hay, molasses. Soft oily palate, sticky, low carbonation, full bodied; taste is intensely dark malty, sweet, sirupy, dry wooden overtones; sticky, somewhat collapsing finish has dry wooden and leather notes. Successful collaboration between Pott’s and Harpoon.
